Whether they’re a tea, hot cocoa, or coffee drinker, a cat mug is one of the most universally perfect gifts for any cat owner. Not only does this mug feature the cute whiskers, nose, and eyes of a cat, but there’s a surprise inside. A ceramic cat hangs out in the center of the mug to slowly emerge from hiding as you drink.
Plus, it comes in several color combos: black and white, black and gold, or white and gold.

Let your cats welcome guests into their, er, your home. This mat is particularly nice because it’s customizable in a few ways.
First, you can have your cats’ names added to the mat and, if you have more than one, even better! You can fit up to three kitties and names on each mat. You can also specify whether your pet has short- or long-hair, and if he’s a Scottish fold or Sphinx. Then you choose their fur colors, as well. Pretty neat, right?

Those who prefer a subtler homage to their feline friends will love this chic, but simple, cat-inspired necklace from Kendra Scott. While we wouldn’t call it a splurge item, it’s certainly a bit more luxe than a lot of the other cat jewelry you find online.
The 18-inch chain is 14-karat gold plate over brass. It will fall just below the collarbone on most women, but if you need a longer chain, there are also extenders. While it comes in three colors, Black Drusy is the only option available at this writing. However, as it’s one of the brand’s best-sellers, you can likely expect a restock before your holiday shopping is done.
Wear your heart on your … chest? With this sweatshirt, you can display your love for your furry friend for all the world to see. Unlike the necklace above, there’s nothing subtle about this comfy wearable.
It also comes in 23 colors and patterns (including tie-dye). You can also choose different details, like pockets and distressing. Throw in that it’s size-inclusive (it’s available up to 4X), and it’s the perfect gift for any outspoken cat lover.

If you prefer giving customized gifts, definitely check out the portraits by Sarah Paints Pets. She’s incredible at capturing pets in a painting and has made the gifting process incredibly easy, as well.
You just send her a photo of the pet you want her to paint. If you don’t have a pic, or your giftee has multiple furbabies, you can order a gift card. They start at $100 for a small portrait of one animal and go up to $290 to have more than one pet painted.
If you have a friend or family member who’s always going on about their fabulous feline (or if that’s you), any of these kitty-centric gifts are sure to make them smile this holiday season.
